Families Upset After UNM Refuses To Allow Guests At Outdoor Graduation

From KOB-TV:

Families are upset after learning they cannot attend UNM's graduation ceremony at University Stadium.

Alfonso Romero was hoping to watch his daughter Jamie graduate on Saturday.

However, the school is not allowing guest to attend the event. Under the current health guidelines, the university could allow up to 29,000 people inside the stadium.

"And you would think that with everything else going on that they would allow at least families – moms, dads, parents to be able to be involved in that," Romero said.

The school said they've been planning to hold an in-person ceremony with just students since March. 

However, Romero believes the school should have been more flexible when the COVID-19 situation began improving.
